“Importing dtSearch hit lists into SafeCopy 2 provides several advantages to our mutual clients.”
kCuraPinpoint Labs and parent company Pivotal Guidance, Inc. address many of the issues facing forensically sound file collection, preservation and EED processing for corporate IT department, law firms, and other legal professionals. Pinpoint’s SafeCopy 2 provides dtSearch users a chain of custody for Electronically Stored Information (ESI) productions, enabling easy production of relevant data sources identified in the search results.

Explains Pinpoint Labs: “Legal professionals rely on dtSearch to locate relevant evidence every day, both as a standalone application and through several leading litigation support applications. Choosing a copy utility that preserves time stamps, metadata, and creates a chain of custody for the files in the dtSearch hit list should be a priority for every litigation support professional.”

In addition to traditional legal professionals, “Corporate IT managers play an important role in document preservation and production. When corporations become involved in law suits, they often turn to their IT departments to assist in file collections. SafeCopy 2 from Pinpoint Labs plays a critical role in corporate file collections because it provides an electronic chain of custody for the files collected, allows users to easily identify any problems encountered, and hash verifies all file copies.”

“SafeCopy 2 is a perfect add-on when dtSearch users need to document the production process and ensure that all files are copied,” notes Pinpoint Labs. “The SafeCopy 2 verification log documents key information about all source files located with dtSearch. It also confirms that the files were copied properly on to the target media. The verification log may be included with the results.”

“Incomplete and undocumented electronic discovery productions occur every day, and the results are costly to both the clients and their legal counsel,” adds the company. “Advising clients about proper file collection methods must be undertaken from the beginning of each case. SafeCopy 2 from Pinpoint Labs addresses several common collection and production issues.”

“I’ve been fortunate enough to work with the products and staff at dtSearch Corp. for more than 8 years,” says Jon Rowe, President, Pinpoint Labs. “It is no wonder why so many software developers and legal professionals rely on dtSearch to quickly and effectively index and search native files. Importing dtSearch hit lists into SafeCopy 2 provides several advantages to our mutual clients.”

In sum, notes Pinpoing Labs: “The change from producing paper to electronically stored information (ESI) means that IT departments and legal professionals everywhere need to respond with new policies and procedures and are often involved in the litigation process. Because this is a new development in many companies, using proven tools like dtSearch and SafeCopy 2 minimize the risks of missing relevant information.”
